This CSCAR workshop covers the essential steps to building a predictive model in Python. We will start with an introductory explanation of Anaconda and the Jupyter notebook environment (although not required for the participant, the instructor will be using these tools). We will proceed with topics including: creation and manipulation of Pandas DataFrames and Matplotlib objects and; creation and interpretation of predictive models using Python’s Scikit-learn. Although not required, we recommend that participants have a basic knowledge of Python and Pandas DataFrames.
